@Falco11

I am looking in these swings of more than 1% legs to get results within 1 to around 4 days.
You state longer time frames - are they adequate to mine or much longer?
And if longer - what is your leg lenght goal in %?

Good trades
GFIs1

Hi GFIs1!

Sorry for my late reply!
As i said everybody must find his own style to get happy and i love your idea to find swing highs or lows to take a trade. It is also my way to trade the DAX because to catch the intraday moves is nothing for me and i want to stay longer in the trade. I have no fix goal in %, i look to the chart and try to scale in and out.
I sold the reversal tops on 25.1. and closed on the blue reversal bars, the last at 7720 yesterday. Flat at the moment. I trade via CFD because i can take the risk wicht fits to my account, the Daxfuture is only for bigboys, i am a little boy.

Signal refining


Hi all

As mentioned in previous posts I was thinking of refining the HiLo signal a bit.
The VWAP band starting every session at zero gives quite good signals in the morning.
Later in the day - speaking of after 12:00 - the band might widen too much so the
price will no longer "touch" the band again.
For this case I refine it like this:
a) valid signal in the morning -
b) wait for US opening and close old leg
c) open opposite trade...
and wait

Update Today

After discussing taking a short in the last post I am putting an update here with actual price / signals / result:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


As we can see - the short is still on track.
There were no valid signals since the short signal to revert...
Result in these three days: 140 points
Outlook - further down-move in the next three days with a leg of around 300 to 400 points.

Nice weekend all

A great long leg here - from +3% in the trade up one has to carefully follow the development...

Swing trading a special way:
For Elliott Wave traders - the Hi/Lo signal could help to only trade the third (longest) wave here.
The above showed trade was number 3...
So here I want to show the bigger picture of the waves which has not ended yet. Assuming that
the price will shoot over 8K in the 5th leg of that uptrend.

Down leg developing


Today we had after a nice up gap in the morning a turning point with a straight downleg in the Dax.

There was one red turning signal in the morning and many long signal on its way down.
But only one was valid in the end.

Looking forward:
Expecting to have a retracement of around >1% on that leg and a new down from wednesday then.
